I've inherited a database with a problem I haven't seen before.


FileMaker 12 on Windows 7.


User right clicks on a container field and chooses, Insert File. User navigates to a PDF and selects it. PDF opens - in Adobe Reader, outside of FileMaker. What is causing this? What can be done to stop this?


I have tried all variations of the settings in the inspector but none have stopped this behaviorr of the pdf automatically opening outside of FileMaker.


Thank you.
